Can A Cosy CLATINA Ergonomic Office Chair Support Big And Tall Users?
This chair is obviously out to provide a different approach to comfort with its thick cushioning, fabric, and minimal features.
It is also meant to be a big and tall model, but is this the case?
The Pros and Cons of this CLATINA Ergonomic Big and Tall Office Chair.
- The cozy look of the grey fabric
- A decent amount of cushioning on the seat and backrest
- Practical features in the base and swivel seat
- The weight allowance is lower than advertised
- The armrests could be better.
The CLATINA Ergonomic Upholstered Office Chair looks great as a cozier alternative to a typical office chair.
Some of the best office chair designs come about when you get companies blending two different styles together. We see this with task chairs that have a more executive feel.
Here there is something a bit different from what looks like an armchair on the base of an office chair. The seat has a lot of cushioning on the seat and backrest, with a grey fabric cover that wouldn’t be out of place in a living room set.
But, there is also the typical five-point base with casters, pneumatic seat height lift, and 360-degree swivel for practical support in the office.
In addition to this, the seat has a little adjustment in the backrest so users can recline a little bit and some movement in the plastic armrests. While neither is excessive, it should be just enough for restful moments in between projects.
Unfortunately, there is a big problem with the advertising of this CLATINA Ergonomic Big and Tall Office Chair.
There are, however, issues with this large upholstered CLATINA ergonomic chair being labeled as a big and tall model. The company state on the listing that there is a weight capacity of 400lb, an extra-wide seat, and enough height in the backrest and height adjustment for taller users.
While there is width, the label on the chair actually warns against use if you are over 275lbs. Some larger users tried it and felt that it wasn’t sturdy enough.
There are also complaints about the lack of padding on the armrests and placement of the seams on the cushion.
What does this all mean for the final verdict on this CLATINA Grey Fabric Ergonomic Chair?
We can’t ignore that glaring issue with the weight allowance. This isn’t the big and tall office chair advertised, so anyone over 275lbs is better off looking at a stronger model. However, that doesn’t mean that smaller users can’t get comfortable here.
There is still potential here for a chair that is a cozy place to sit and do a little light work in a home office – somewhere to curl up and do your online shopping, check emails or sort out bills.
If nothing else, the CLATINA office chair is definitely an interesting choice for those that don’t want a bland, stiff chair.
